Substances used in Chinese Herbal Medicine

Today, there are more than 3000 Chinese Herbs commonly used in Chinese Herbal Medicine – most are of plant origin though some animal and mineral herbs may also be used. You may find some in your kitchen, such as ginger, garlic and cinnamon, while others such as chrysanthemum and peony flowers, are more likely to be found in your garden! Many of the herbs used will be unfamiliar to you and have names like Chai Hu (Bupleurum), Di Huang (Rehmannia), and Huang Qi (Astragalus). These Herbs are all Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) approved.

Some substances that were used traditionally are no longer part of modern professional Chinese Herbal Medicine practice. For example, traditional remedies that are derived from endangered species have been replaced by other substances with similar actions.

Your Questions Answered

How is Chinese Herbal Medicine prescribed?

Chinese Herbal Medicine is prescribed either singly or made into formulae which take into account the individual therapeutic action of each herb as well as the effects when combined together. A well constructed formula maximises the effectiveness for a particular condition, while counteracting and minimising the unwanted effects of an individual herb.

How do I consume Chinese Herbal Medicine?

Chinese Herbal Medicine generally doesn’t taste very nice. At Sixth Sense Acupuncture we have listened to our patients and we provide a protein supplement, to be consumed with the granules or a powdered form of Chinese Herbal Medicine. The protein supplement reduces the nasty tasting of the Chinese Herbs. In our herbal packages we provide both Vegan/Lactose Intolerant friendly Protein Supplements, or a Whey Protein Supplement and a shake bottle to go with the Protein Supplement. We provide different flavours for your convenience.
